About this book

Digital News Media (DNM) are characterized by their efforts to provide consumers with new content interaction experiences, which contrast with the more passive experiences provided by traditional news media. This book directly addresses these interaction experiences, taking the reader from underlying principles to actual practices. To meet this objective, the book undertakes a characterization of interactivity in DNM and explores the boundaries between storytelling and direct data access. It examines information visualization trends present in the media, and practices in non-fiction storytelling in the context of the current wave of VR technology. Moreover, it addresses how UX research and evaluation methods can be applied to inform the design of interactive media. It also analyzes the concept of Newsonomics and it examines the reform of intellectual property law and legislation governing authors' rights. The book concludes by analyzing the scientific production of interaction over the last 10 years, extracting the main conclusions, and highlighting the lessons that can be extracted from the previous chapters.

Reviews

“Interactive journalism is not just a way to make more compelling digital content; it is key piece of a serious digital transformation strategy and core to future business models. That is precisely what this book examines, and why this is such an important topic at a critical time for the industry.” (Aron Pilhofer, James B. Steele Chair in Journalism Innovation at Temple University, USA)

“In a world where platforms and skills are constantly evolving, this is a much-needed book that helps journalists and students to develop the critical ideas to be able to adapt to that environment. In particular the book helps readers to get to grips with the tensions that surround interactivity, understand the opportunities in VR and immersive media, the rising role of user experience (UX), and the ongoing development of new narrative forms.” (Paul Bradshaw, Course Leader for both the MA in Data Journalism and the MA Multiplatform and Mobile Journalism, Birmingham City University, UK)

“What if journalism stopped consisting of telling people what to see, and instead became the craft of designing tools to find what people need to see? This book deftly explores that premise, providing a pathway to the future.” (Alberto Cairo, Knight Chair in Visual Journalism, University of Miami, USA)
